Krispie Kisses


Happy Valentine's Day!  I'm always looking for cute and creative ways to express my love around this fun holiday.  And if there's anyway to involve food, I know it will be loved for sure!  These Krispie Kisses were a hit with everyone (even my husband thought it was cute) and it's hard to find something easier than rice krispies to make.  Just use a funnel to shape the rice krispies into a "kiss" shape and then wrap them up in foil.  They all liked the personalized paper strips poking out of the top too.  If you miss making these for Valentine's Day this time around, don't wait until next year.  They'd be a fun treat, any day of the year!



Ingredients
3 TBS butter
40 large marshmallows OR 4 cups miniature marshmallows*
6 cups rice krispie cereal
funnel
6 squares of aluminum foil
6 paper strips

*I used pink marshmallows but you can use regular, if you prefer

Directions
Stovetop:
In a large saucepan, melt butter.  Add marshmallows and stir until completely smooth and melted.  Remove from heat.  Add in cereal.  Stir until well mixed.  Spray non-stick cooking spray inside your funnel.  Press about one cup of rice krispie mix into the funnel.  When it is pressed enough to hold it's shape, shake it out onto a square of foil.  Fold the corners up and wrap the foil around the rice krispie treat.  Tuck a personalized paper strip into the top of the foil.

Microwave:
Heat butter and marshmallows in a large, microwave safe bowl, on high for 2 minutes.  Stir.  If not smooth and completely melted, heat for one more minute.  Add in cereal.  Stir until well mixed.  Spray non-stick cooking spray inside your funnel.  Press about one cup of rice krispie mix into the funnel.  When it is pressed enough to hold it's shape, shake it out onto a square of foil.  Fold the corners up and wrap the foil around the rice krispie treat.  Tuck a personalized paper strip into the top of the foil.

Kylie and I made these a few years ago and I accidentally added too much butter and they totally fell apart (who messes up rice krispy treats???). I have forgotten about them since then, I'll totally have to try them again!
